Recent Buys: April 2013

Left to right: Primark PJ bottoms £6.00, Topshop necklace £5.00, No7 Lip Crayon £9.00, Topshop shoes £18.00

I bought these pyjama bottoms in Primark the other day after instantly falling in love with them. They are just really pretty and lightweight making them perfect for summer nights...and lazy days.  

It's usually worth having a look at the sale jewellery in Topshop and I'm glad I did. I love the bright colours and will probably wear this with a plain grey or white T-shirt. However, I don't think I would have paid the full price for it which was £10 but that's because I have enough necklaces that I hardly wear! 

I picked up a No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in the shade Delicate Pink because I was expecting it to be like a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain which I love! (Or a Clinique Chubby Stick, which I haven't tried...yet).
 I've used it a couple of times and have found that it is much more moisturising than the balm stains. It doesn't have the same staying power and is more of a cross between the balm stains and lip butters but overall I think it's a lovely product and I know I will get a lot of use out of it. 

I have wanted to buy a pair of flatforms for a while and found these Marley pumps on the Topshop website. As soon as I saw that they had been reduced to £18 from £30 in the sale I quickly snapped them up. I originally ordered them in Yellow but they ended up not having them in stock and I decided to get the coral pair to give them a try. I'm so glad I did because they are such a lovely colour and are actually really comfortable shoes. I'm pretty average height but it's nice to get some height without having to wear heels (which I don't get on with). 

There are some pretty good bargains out there in the mid season sales. Have you found any?

  1. Love the necklace! I have the neon pink earrings that match :) x

    1. I also got the pink earrings to match! My friend has the purple ones so i'm guessing they did them in every colour but they all went in my local Topshop :/ x
